Hi all,

How about the setup and installation (wiring). Also need to add one printer. Is there anybody can give me sketch or link site to explain further more.

Thanks

if you ain't using a print server, just connect the printer on the one of the com that is most often switched on. and connect all the com to a router and do setup in window.

If you want to make things simple for yourself, just get one of those all-in-one broadband routers that come with at least 4 switched ports (2 for your desktop, 1 for your notebook) as well as a built-in print server (so you don't have to have a dedicated print server on a PC, otherwise that PC must be on all the time).

Connect 2 desktops & 1 notebook ?
1. What is the Internet Connection ? ADSL or cable ? What is your current setup ?
2. How far between all hardwares ?

My recommendation is get a wireless router with 4 ports. Connect 1 or 2 of the desktop to the router via ethernet cable(s) (RJ45 - straight). Ensure both desktops have ethernet card (PCI) installed else buy it at Sim Lim Square. Look for 3COM brand. For notebook, if it has built-in wireless, just configure your wireless router with SSID + WEP or MAC filtering.

Mega has covered more or less liao.

Just need to know if ADSL or cable

From ur requirement, i guess its for home use.

1 X wireless router
2 X wireless transciever device

Set ur wireless to WEP security, Select how many bits u want. Enable SSID broadcast. .
and set wireless access to PC restricted to ur PC mac address.

In my humble opinion. Dun get netgear, cheap and lousy. problematic :thumbsd:
